Follow Me

 

After these things He went out and saw a tax collector named Levi, sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, “Follow Me”” (Luke 5:27 NKJV). When Jesus called the disciples, He just said. “Follow Me.” He doesn’t say anything about the need to serve Him, but to just follow Him. Jesus is the Shepherd who leads. We are the sheep who just follow. In fact, when we see verses like, “But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness” (1 Timothy 6:11), we are literally following Jesus. Jesus is our righteousness, our godliness, our faith, our love and when we follow after these things we just simply follow Jesus. When the disciples followed Jesus around through the towns and villages of Israel, they saw what God was like on earth. They saw His righteousness, His godliness, etc. in action, moment by moment, each day. So when these verses tell us to follow after these virtues, we are just following Jesus. The more we know and see of Him, we will automatically go with Him into these other things.
